Unless they're already in the US, they're yet to depart the UK. With the exercise commencing tomorrow, I'd say it's a little late now.

The three 41 Sqn jets have been in the States for a couple of months and have been at Nellis for over a week. Their serials should be ZK375, 376 and 433.

Well that's going to make for some very Light and/or Short Flying times. Assuming the RAF has 1 maybe 2 there.

8 x Spanish Eufis for RF2020-2, probably a mix from Ala11 and Ala14.

168772/NL550 has a slightly changed scheme from the other US ones (darker tail with light grey marks) but no colours on it
The Aussie Growlers are all standard
F model A44-210 has the black and yellow "100 years Fighting First" tail

I'm not surprised you missed their transit out. It was nine months ago.

They departed the UK on 29th April 2019 as "RRR9621" Flight to Lajes and moved on the next day. Tanking was by "RRR9211" Voyager ZZ336.

There were another 6 Ohio F16s that arrived just before sunset. It appears their tanker went to LAS.
